Alexander Horoshavin: TORs will give impetus to the development of the Far East in general, and Sakhalin in particular

According to the Governor of the Sakhalin Region Alexander Horoshavin, the territories of advanced development (TORs) will become an important tool in implementing the state policy of the Russian Federation and improving the quality of life of people in the Far Eastern Federal District.

"The activities of the TORs will allow solving the problems of integrating the Far Eastern constituent entities of the Russian Federation into the economic space of the countries of the Asia-Pacific region, creating additional high-tech jobs, increasing the tax base, and quickly implementing projects aimed at developing the macroregion," Alexander Khoroshavin told the EastRussia agency.

The Governor of the Sakhalin Region drew attention to the fact that the idea of ​​creating territories for advanced development is to create areas for attracting foreign investments from the APR countries. To do this, it is expected to provide investors with preferential business conditions: to reduce infrastructure costs and administrative burden, to provide tax incentives, and, of course, the corresponding legal and regulatory framework.

"Regarding the Sakhalin region, I note that in addition to the raw materials industries: oil and gas, fish, coal, timber, projects in the energy sector, agro-industrial complex, mariculture and so on are of serious interest to business. Many of them are close to implementation or are already at this stage, "the governor of the Sakhalin region said.

In his opinion, the creation of advanced development territories in the region will make it possible to accelerate these processes, and in the conditions of the challenges our state has faced this year, it is extremely important to speed up this work.

"I am confident that the range of instruments proposed by the Law on TORs is capable of giving a powerful impetus to the industrial development of the Far East and, in particular, the Sakhalin Region," noted Alexander Khoroshavin.

Recall that in the list of 14 ToRs, selected and publicly represented by the Ministry of East Development, there are no sites in the Sakhalin Region.
